  • Health Care Aide bids farewell to long-term care after 38 years

    Janette Wheeler is having a hard time leaving a job she loves.

    Working for the past 38 years as a Health Care Aide at Carveth Care Centre, a long-term care home in Gananoque, Janette retired last month due to health reasons. She was hoping to work for a few more years.

    “It’s been a really good experience,” says the 67-year-old woman. “This type of work is extremely rewarding. Taking care of people has been my life. It’s hard to step down. I’ll miss the residents and their stories.”

    Wearing a heart necklace and a warm smile, Janette is known for her care and compassion towards others. For years in the summer, she shared vegetables from her garden with residents and staff.

    “They loved it,” she remembers fondly.

    When the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020, she even ran errands for the residents in her spare time. “The pandemic really put a damper on things,” she explains. “It’s nice to see life returning to normal, now.”

  • Happiness overflows to residents of long-term care home from family visit

    Ernie Lambert is still smiling from his visit to Carveth Care Centre last March.

    A long-term care home in Gananoque, Carveth is home to Ernie’s father, Bert, who enjoyed a special visit with extended family on March 19, 2024. The visit included a musical performance by Bert’s nephew, J’Ukebox George of Calabogie.

    “Over the last few weeks during my trip to Ontario, I was at Carveth five or six times to visit dad; I had a great time, “says Ernie from his home on Vancouver Island. “The visit with my cousin George was extra special. He brought his guitar and played for an hour.”

    While at the home, family members also had their picture taken with resident Marianne who was Bert’s neighbour on Howe Island where Bert lived for many years. Before he retired from CFB Borden as a member of the Canadian Armed Forces, Bert was an electrical mechanical engineer. He has eight siblings (all sisters) and eight children.

    “It was nice to see her, as well,” says Ernie with a smile about the familiar face.

    Speaking on behalf of the home, Activity Director Shannon Buell notes, “Residents loved the music by Bert’s nephew. It was nice to see a different entertainer. It was special because it was for Bert.”

    Carveth Care Centre is grateful for the support of families. It you would like to share your time or talent with our home, please contact us at 613-382-4752 ext. 107.
